Ghoulish Punch from WeeliciousPin

It only took my kids two weeks of deliberating to decide what they want be for Halloween, but decisions have finally been made, costumes have been picked and now we’re ready for the big day. I wish we didn’t have to wait two weeks more for the big day, but knowing that Halloween falls on a Friday this year means we can stay up late, and that makes our whole family — even me — really excited. I’m sure you’ve got lots of spooky recipes planned for your celebration, but I’m here to offer you another fun one… Ghoulish Punch!

We’ve been buying fresh lychees at our local farmers’ market for some time. My kids go nuts for them. The more I stared at them in my kitchen, the more I realized they looked like eyes and they inspired today’s recipe. If your fingers can handle peeling tons of these naturally sweet little gems, go for it. But if you’re like me, a can of lychees is a much easier way to go . I whizzed up some all natural, dye-free cherry punch to go with them too. Ghoulish punch that’s super tasty and creepy all at the same time.

About the Author

Catherine is a mama of three. A Kentucky girl living in California. Here’s what I know: all kids can be great eaters and mealtime must be easy. I create simple, healthy recipes the whole family will love.


  1. Love this! We trade candy for toys in our house due to multiple food allergies but would love a story that gives the switch a positive spin!

  2. I love the eyeballs! I really want one of those witches!!! We are totally doing this this year!!

  3. Shared on Facebook. This would be awesome! My kid is really wanting candy this year and I want to help her make better choices.

  4. My favorite Halloween treat growing up would be a blow pop wrapped in a tissue which made it look like a ghost. 🙂

  5. Chewy candy like licorice, dots, etc. I’d love to win this as I have a friend with one child who can’t have corn anything, amongst soooo many other things. He literally can’t keep food down if it has any of these seemingly random ingredients. So, this would make it more fun for him.

  6. I always loved Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. Also, I would dump out all of my M&Ms, sort them by color, and eat the tan ones first. They were my favorite!

  7. Two slices of apples, and I place small marshmallows in between them. They look like mouths, and make a healthy snack.

  8. Thanks for the recipe,was hoping to find something new this year. My favorite thing was always the home made popcorn balls from an elderly lady in my hometown.

  9. My favorite candy was those peanut butter taffy like chews (wrapped in Orange or brown) or abba zabba.
    Been doing the switch witch for 3 years now, my daughter knows nothing different…and looks forward to her visit!

  10. I would love to win this for my community Halloween party we are putting on!

  11. I have been pinning your Halloween recipes for my son! We are very excited to make them 🙂

  12. My favorite then (and now) was Milky Way bars. Yum! Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.

  13. My favorite Halloween candy was always Starbursts. Mmmmm…can’t wait to sneak some from my kids ; )

  14. Chocolate Chocolate—anything but I always prefer dark and the darker the better!

  15. I loved anything sweet, sour, and gummy (I know… a terrible combination for your teeth!)

  16. I was, and continue to be, a Kit Kat girl! Reeses PB cups have always been particularly alluring during Halloween as well.

  17. I was an odd child growing up – always liked to play with and organize my candy more than eating it :). But I always loved Mr. Goodbars!

  18. How do I choose? 😉 My faves are probably Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

  19. What a great idea! And how is it I’ve gotten to kid number 6 without knowing about the Switch Witch? Just genius!

  20. Hmm, a favorite candy. . .hard to decide! Reese’s pumpkins, the really fat tootsie rolls, and 3 Musketeers. All if which i don’t eat anymore 🙂

  21. I love that Halloween is beginning to give kids with food allergies a way to be trendy and cool instead of the ‘odd kid out’. My son always has to have his treats modified to accommodate his needs to avoid all gluten, dairy, egg, and soy. Switchcraft would really make Halloween more fun for him. And the punch would make it tastier!

  22. I’m so curious about this book! My favorite Halloween treats were always Almond Joys! And I’m not familiar with lychees so I’ll have to check them out.

  23. My husband is from Sri Lanka and loves Lychee! Maybe I’ll make this punch for the little boys and the “big” boy 🙂

  24. Bottle caps were a big fav that we only ever got on Halloween. Also, Reese’s!

  25. My favorite candy was and still is Reeses peanut butter cups. But now I opt for the dark chocolate ones that Justin’s make!

  26. Thank you so much for the chance to win. Great idea for eye balls, very clever.

  27. Candy Corn…and it still is even though I have upgraded to caramel candy corn!

  28. How cute- I’ve never heard of this before. I’ve always loved anything chocolate.

  29. We never did treat or treating for sweeties on Halloween as children – it’s very much a US tradition. My 2 eat 6 and have had enough… thank goodness.

  30. Fun post! We’ve been doing the Switch Witch for a few years although we call it the Great Pumpkin. Favorite treat as a kid: Almond Joy

  31. We have a tradition where my kids can pick any 3 candies they want then they have fun passing the rest of it out to all of their adult relatives that come trick or treating with us.

  32. My favorite treat was a candy bar! I absolutely loved Snicker bars but any candy bar would do lol

  33. We do the “switch witch” with our kids – was unaware of the book! So cute. I loved anything chocolate as a kid (still do! )

  34. A local dentist’s office gives money in exchange for candy and gives out a toothbrush…we’ll see how well this works!

  35. i love the orange and black wrapped peanut butter kisses! even to this day

  36. too totally cute! i would love to give that to my new goddaughter for Halloween!

  37. Kerr’s Molasses Kisses! I try to stay away from sugar but if I found these again all resolve would crumble.

  38. Smarties – the chocolate was good, but blowing into the box afterwards was the best! Made the coolest sound (from a kid perspective, of course.) Taught my daughter last year to her great delight. 🙂

  39. I loved 100 Grand bars too, only when I was younger they were still called Hundred Thousand Dollar Bars…now I’m dating myself!

  40. Ok I am so going to make these!!!! Oh and we loved the popcorn balls recipe!!

  41. Smarties – and as an adult, I still ask my kid to share with me if he gets any at Halloween.

  42. My favorite treat was candy apples! It was nice to have homemade treats from wonderful neighbors when I was a kid!

  43. My favorite Halloween treat as a kid was always the mini Reese’s peanut butter cups.

  44. Almond joy…but my mom has a homemade version that is even better because it uses dark chocolate.

  45. I have always loved (then and now) the tiny packages of peanut M & Ms.

  46. Reeses was always my favorite treat, Switchcrafted. The Story of the Switch Witches of Halloween looks like a fun new tradition to help celebrate the fun day!

  47. Snickers! And if you ever got a full sized candy bar, it was like winning the lottery!! 🙂

  48. What a fun idea to move away from candy overload on Halloween. Thanks for the giveaway – I’d love to win a kit

  49. I loved Reese’s pb cups growing up. I always ate those first. Now as an health conscious adult my views have changed…I prefer Justin’s or Unreal.
